Syndicate Plus is a re-release of the game 'Syndicate' allied together with its expansion pack, 'Syndicate: American Revolt', and it came out in 1996. The game was one of the earliest to be developed and published by the now world-famous Electronic Arts organisation. Syndicate Plus is a real-time tactical game that was released on to a tremendous number of different platforms, and it received an average reception from critics.

Features

As would become a staple of many Electronic Arts games, Syndicate Plus was equipped with an impressive array of sound effects and an all-encompassing soundtrack, which was rather rare for the limited resources of games in the mid-1990s. Over 50 missions are included in the game, ensuring a decent life-span for the player. Syndicate Plus also has a detailed back-story, again a rarity for games that were released in this time, which helps the player become immersed in the experience.

Conclusion

Syndicate received a lukewarm reception upon release, but its popularity has grown with time. Computer Gaming World would later rank it as the 67th best computer game of all time. A sequel was made, in 1996, and there were further efforts to reintroduce Syndicate onto the next generation of consoles but, ultimately, this did not come to fruition.
